Update
10z CAPE sounding indicated low level nnw flow and a pwat around
1.61 inches with relatively dry air in the 700-500 mb layer. 12z
tampa sounding had slightly more low level moisture below 750 mbs
with a pwat around 1.76 inches. A subtle low level trough will swing
southward into central sections this afternoon along with the east
coast sea breeze developing and moving inland by mid to late
afternoon. Forecast moisture and instability should support isolated
showers developing first across volusia county and the developing
southwestward into the interior later this afternoon. Hrrr and other
high resolution short range guidance indicate thunder chances will
be very low but will not completely rule out a storm or two
developing with peak heating later this afternoon along inland
moving boundaries. Made slight adjustments to the weather grids but
overall little change to the low convective chances today. Highs
today will reach the upper 80s near the volusia coast and near 90
from brevard south along the coast. Will see lower 90s for the
interior this afternoon.

High surf advisory and high rip current risk in effect at east
central florida beaches with large east-northeast long period swells
continuing to affect the coast into this evening.

Aviation
MainlyVFR outside of isold shra developing kdab-ktix corridor and
moving inland this afternoon. Appears most isolated convection will
stay inland from cstl terminals kmlb-ksua.

Marine
Update... Seas at buoy 41009 running around 9 ft this morning in a
large east swell and buoy 41114 6 miles northeast of ft pierce inlet
has also reached 9 ft. The large swells will pose difficult
navigation at inlets along the coast through the day. No significant
changes expected with morning marine updates. Small craft advisory
remains in place for all waters.

Previous... Today and tonight... The combination of nly winds and

the coast and 8-10ft offshore today. Slow decay of swell will keep a
advisory headline in place areawide for seas in the forecast later
tonight as gradient winds diminish to less than 10 kt.

It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
